The world is not fair, and some mages are born with a greater capacity for mana than others. These who are gifted with mana upon birth are called mages, and are capable of performing miraculous feats. Powerful mages are in extremely high demand around the world.
A Mage’s power usually manifest around their teens.
5 Ranks of Mages:
Although ranked, mages can ascend past their ranks and be classified differently. While some mages stagnate at certain levels of abilities, many work hard to attain the highest ranks and privileges along with it.
Mahj – the first rank, and where the title of “Mage” comes from.
Mahjs are the lowest of the ranks, and one is automatically classified as a Mahj once they’ve awoke to their magic. Most are weak and lack the abilities of the higher tiers along with mana control. Mahjs are usually taught by a teacher until they’ve at least become a Rujal.
Rujal – the second rank and most common of magicians.
Unlike the Mahj, Rujal's have greater power, but lacks capacity. Rujals are quite adequate at controlling their mana, and are able to use various magics. It is around this stage where nobles send their sons or daughters to the academy.
Raezil – the third rank.
Raezils are powerful magicians who can expertly command their mana, resulting in more powerful spells. It is around this stage where mages contract with elemental spirits to amplify their abilities, and borrow from Lagus.
Malgin – The fourth rank.
Malgins are experts at utilizing their mana to their utmost. Not only can they contract with many elements, becoming a Malgin means that you are one who understands your own magic to its fullest. Malgins are not limited to just using their spirits as channels, but they can also summon their spirits into the physical world as familiars, to do their biddings.
Malizur – The fifth rank and most powerful.
They are the highest order of those born with mana. Favored by the elements at birth, they are gifted with massive capabilities. Malizurs are the rarest of magicians, and are one in a thousand when it comes to mages.
Kings and queens shower them with favors, hoping to win them as allies.
Dvitus – The lost rank.
Stories recall mages of ages past who were not bound by the laws of the world. These mages were people who governed mana, using their great strength to create changes in history. With unlimited power at their disposal, Dvitus can summon the elemental lords themselves into the world to do their biddings. Shaping the world as they see fit, giving life and taking them at a whim. These mages were so feared, that they eventually became legend. Those who know of their might aspires to reclaim this lost title.
